    If these characters were trying to help Americans, and help America succeed, they wouldn’t be placed on the mountain of shame.

    Wait a sec – don’t you have to have been born in the USA to rate a spot on Mt. Flushmore?

    Mr. Luckovich’s cartoon is divisive and will only harden the positions of most of those who agree and disagree with him.
    Fortunately for him, there are plenty of folks who enjoy justifying their uncompromising and recalcitrant stands so they can flame those with whom they disagree rather than have a dialectic conversation about why Mr. Luckovich might have chose these people as “problems” in our politics. A conservative cartoonist could have easily provided similar caricatures of liberals whose political behavior has contributed to the divisiveness and weakening of our nation and the insults between neighbors.

    @alanrussell59

    And your comment sounds like it comes from the mouth of a true Nazi fascist.
    Do you know the difference?

    Actually that sounds like a description of the Tea Party and those of the GOP who forget what the Constitution and our Pledge of allegiance really says instead of what they wish it had said.

    Your post doesn’t really work, considering how little legislation has been PASSED by this Congress.

    Actually it does. It’s about BarryCare.

    If you don’t think that this cartoon points up a major problem in the Republican party, a lack of leaders who can appeal to a vast majority of voters and not a fringe element, then you truly are in denial.

    Exactly. If the GOP or the Tea Party or whatever they’ll officially be calling themselves in 2016 ever wants to be taken seriously enough to get a presidential candidate elected, they’ll have to assemble a field of presidential candidates the whole world won’t laugh at. And I don’t see that happening.

    Actually, Efells, I see a lack of leaders in both parties. I also believe that the media, not intelligent and objective groups of people, will choose our options for us and Citizen’s United will cement those choices with billions of dollars across the nation.

    I agree with both of your comments, Ahab. I made a comment about Citizen’s United very recently and its effects on our gov’t and behaviors of our elected.
    But just as I call out the conservative artists for adding fuel to the flames dividing neighbors, my trollish nature demands I do the same here. Mr. Luckovich is talented and better able to communicate his message in a way that is more educational and less confrontational. However, that is my view and my sister would agree with you. I’ve a daughter who would agree with the photograph depicting a conservative view of Mt. Rushmore.
    I believe the actual figures on that mountain would be disappointed in how their efforts have been perverted by those in office.
    Thank you for the reply, and know that I do respect your opinion and enjoy your writings.
    Respectfully,
    C.

    You may be right, but I think the Citizen’s United money will choose the Republican/Fox “news”/TSE Party candidate. Last election, Republican ‘leaders’ actively suppressed the candidacy of Buddy Roemer (who?)
    -
    The Democrats’ candidate may well be chosen by the media, but other than Hillary, I don’t see anyone on the horizon at this point.
    -
    I’d be interested in who you believe the possible candidates will be.

    The fact that there are commenters for this cartoon that see the fools represented as intelligent shows clearly the intellectual bankruptcy of the modern day Republican Party.
